Fannin County Animal Control is over capacity. The folks at Animal Control have been kind enough to house the animals for extended periods, despite being allowed to euthanize. Folks are urged to check for any lost pets and adopt new ones.
In the past week, officers brought in 10 dogs with four reclaimed, one going to 4 Lucky Paws Rescue and one going to Doggone Rescue.
Animal Control Officers and volunteers alike hope folks may be willing to open their home and their hearts to the dogs in their facility.
Community members are welcome to make item or monetary donations and may also walk dogs to help them get exercise.
Pet owners should make sure to properly tag and identify pets to prevent them being picked up unnecessarily. It is also advised to keep microchip information up to date.
Hours of operation at Animal Control are Monday - Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at the facility. After hours the officers follow up with community concerns and respond to stray dog calls.
Call 706-632-3845 for information on any of the dogs at Animal Control, to donate, volunteer or to see if a lost family pet has been picked up.
